Here are a few of our favorite last-minute gifts under $20:

It’s Not Too Late to Give Back
Through December 31, Walgreens is collaborating with Mental Health America to bring people together with their virtual ’ Swear Jar.’ The Swear Jar gives people the opportunity to find the bright spot in real-life moments of frustration that make them want to yell out “oh humbug!” and turn them into donations that provide support and resources to those facing mental health challenges.

To show its commitment to support and wellbeing for all, Walgreens has made a one-time $500,000 donation and is matching every dollar donated to Mental Health America via the ‘Swear Jar,’ up to an additional $500,000 through December 31.* In partnership with our customers, we hope to donate up to $1.5 million.

Customers who wish to donate to the ‘Swear Jar’ are encouraged to visit mhanational.org/swearjar and can donate any dollar amount.

* Daily delivery is Monday through Sunday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Orders must be placed by 7 p.m., but hours may vary by store location. Some deliveries may not be eligible for same day due to delivery address, holidays, weather or other delivery constraints. Deliveries must be either entirely accepted or rejected. No partial order acceptance permitted. Please note that an individual’s signature or presence may not be required upon delivery. Prescriptions not eligible but may be available through Rx Same Day Delivery. Orders containing age-restricted items require you to present a valid government ID to verify your age at delivery.
